For so many, photography is an artistic hobby used to encapsulate the unique vision of the person behind the lens. For Josephine, photography is her life; from the moment she bought her first 35mm camera at age 15, she was exploring the boundaries of what she could capture.
While living in Austria between 2003 and 2006 she utilized her ever refining skills to explore the emotions that photography could evoke. Her talents earned her a place in three exhibitions: "Colorful Ausseerland" which marked the start of the Austrian County Fair and "Flowers," a "One Woman Show" by "Invitation" and an invitation to show with the Steirermark County Foto Club in the Town Hall in Bad Aussee.
After returning to the States she decided to embark on a new path, capturing monumental moments in people's lives. To date Josephine has photographed hundreds of Weddings, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, Corporate Events, and Portraits; spanning three countries, and multiple states. Her passion is only superseded by her level of professionalism, her one goal: to execute the clients vision while capturing their individual style. Client reviews reveal a lot about Josephine, her work ethic and her talent.
Her passion for photography also gives back to the community through her nonprofit events. Donatelli’s photography has helped raise money for the Leslie McCarthy Family Fund, Partnership for Children, the Kyle Kramer Medical Fund and Imagine (A Center for Coping with Loss.)
She is a member of the PPA, "Professional Photographers of America" and NPS “Nikon Professional Services.
